One of my core interests, beginning with my Ph.D. dissertation, has been to explore the distinctive features of classical Chinese philosophical psychology. This research involves developing accounts of early Chinese theories of mind, action, epistemology, and logic. Three key articles summarize my work on this project so far:
- Distinctions, Judgment, and Reasoning in Classical Chinese Thought. History and Philosophy of Logic 34.1 (2013), 1–24.
- Knowledge and Error in Early Chinese Thought. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy 10.2 (2011): 127–48.
- Action and Agency in Early Chinese Thought. Journal of Chinese Philosophy and Culture 5 (2009): 217–39.
Other relevant articles include these:
- Wu-wei, the Background, and Intentionality. In Searle’s Philosophy and Chinese Philosophy: Constructive Engagement, ed. Bo Mou, Leiden: Brill (2008): 63–92.
- Weakness of Will, the Background, and Chinese Thought. (With Kai-yee Wong.) In Searle’s Philosophy and Chinese Philosophy: Constructive Engagement, ed. Bo Mou, Leiden: Brill (2008): 313–33.
- Tang Junyi on Mencian and Mohist Conceptions of Mind. In Contemporary Confucians of the Chinese University, Cheng Chung Yi, ed. New Asia Academic Bulletin 19 (October 2006): 203–33.
